Paragraph
44

παμπόλλου δʼ ἐπιπράσκετο Ἀθήνησιν τοῦ μύρου κοτύλη, καὶ ὡς μὲν Ἵππαρχός φησιν ἐν Παννυχίδι, εʹ μνῶν, ὡς δὲ Μένανδρος ἐν Μισογύνῃ, ιʹ. Ἀντιφάνης δʼ ἐν Φρεαρρίῳ στακτῆς τοῦ μύρου μνημονεύων φησίν· στακτὴ δυοῖν μναῖν οὐκ ἀρέσκει μʼ οὐδαμῶς. οὐ μόνον δὲ τὸ τῶν Σαρδιανῶν γένος φιλόμυρον ἦν, ὡς Ἄλεξίς φησιν ἐν Ἐκπωματοποιῷ· ἀεὶ φιλόμυρον πᾶν τὸ Σάρδεων γένος, ἀλλὰ καὶ αὐτοὶ οἱ Ἀθηναῖοι οἱ πάντων τῶν καλλίστων εἰσηγηταὶ τῷ τῶν ἀνθρώπων βίῳ γενόμενοι, παρʼ οἷς ἀνυπερβλήτου τιμῆς, ὡς προείρηται, τῶν μύρων ὑπαρχούσης οὐκ ἀπείχοντο τῆς χρήσεως, ὥσπερ οὐδὲ ἡμεῖς νῦν οὕτω πολυτίμων τῶν καλλίστων ὑπαρχόντων, ὡς λῆρον εἶναι τὰ ἐν τῷ Εἰσοικιζομένῳ Ἀλέξιδος ταυτί· οὐ γὰρ ἐμυρίζετʼ ἐξ ἀλαβάστου, πρᾶγμά τι γινόμενον ἀεί, κρονικόν, ἀλλὰ τέτταρας περιστερὰς ἀφῆκεν ἀποβεβαμμένας εἰς οὐχὶ ταὐτόν, μὰ Δία, τὴν αὐτὴν μύρον, ἰδίῳ δʼ ἑκάστην. πετόμεναι δʼ αὗται κύκλῳ ἔρραινον ἡμῶν θαἰμάτια καὶ στρώματα. μή μοι φθονήσητʼ, ἄνδρες Ἑλλήνων ἄκροι· ἠλειφόμην ὑόμενος ἰρίνῳ μύρῳ.

CTS URN Retriever

The CTS URN retriever is a tool for retrieving and citing paragraphs, passages, and words in the text of the Deipnosophists by typing the corresponding CTS URN. The Digital Athenaeus is providing the text of the Teubner edition of the Deipnosophists by Georg Kaibel (1887-1890), which is cataloged as perseus-grc2 in the Perseus Catalog.

The syntax of the URNs follows the specification of the CITE Architecture.

For example:

The tool allows also users to type only book and paragraph of the Deipnosophists and get the corresponding CTS URN.

For example:

Correspondences between Casaubon and Kaibel references are available through the Casaubon-Kaibel Reference Converter.

The icons on the left of each paragraph are links to external resources:

Using CTS URNs, it is possible to export citations of the Deipnosophists down to the word level. By selecting a portion of text holding down the ALT-key, users get a pop-up window with the CTS URN that identifies the selected chunk of text.
